You’re supposed to pray they come?   I bet the chicken is prayin’ they DON’T come!

That IS wierd.

Some people are so non-committal.

i would ring them and say if you cant give me a 100% def right now then im sorry but i will have to mark you down as a no as i have to place final numbers for caterers and seating

really… let me phone them… i really think alot of Bees need a somewhat older head and firmer hand to make these calls and today im in the mood to do it!

The invitations we chose had blank RSVP cards.  People were so bothered by this.  No idea how to handle a blank RSVP.  I got some where people just signed their name without saying if they are coming or not.  Some that just said “Yes.”  My best friend was determined to use the space as creatively as possible so she wrote out a message in glue and glitter.

 

And your post was so funny I had to read it to my mother.  She is cracking up.

I had a friend call and ask me where he should put the number attending (uhhhhh, in the little spot reserved for the number attending?!?!) and then call back a day later and ask what the M meant – we did the formal RSVP’s that start with an M for them to start filling in the blank.. lord.

My “friend” and her husband couldn’t come to the wedding and the only explanation they gave was a little note at the bottom that said, “we’re buying a house.” No congratulations, no I’m sorry but we’re financially strapped because we’re buying a house… it was sort of mysterious and my husband and I had to wonder what was going on… were they closing the deal that day? was that moving day? I know they still haven’t bought a house and the wedding was two months ago… very odd. We still haven’t heard from them.

Those are some really strange responses. As long as I don’t get one that says “eat **** and die”, I’ll just laugh.

Maybe they just got back from a doctor visit and are waiting results from a test.  When people ask for prayers its usually for a good reason.

I was Maid/Matron of Honor in a wedding and the bride had sent out formal invites just as laylabelle has with a “M.. fill in the blank.”  Our friend wrote:

“M I’M COMING!”

I could only laugh, but obviously a very lovely invitation was wasted on him!

My RSVPs all came back fine.  My grandmother/-father sent theirs back marked “yes” and what they wanted for dinner.  THREE DAYS LATER I got a hand written note from them saying they had decided they changed their mind and would NOT be attending our wedding, citing the “long and arduious journey” as being the main factor.  The “long and arduious” journey is, in fact, a 3 hour drive down Rt. 95 (a major highway on the east coast).  No phone call.  Just a note.  As a gift, we received a savings bond purchased under my maiden name in 2006 (we were engaged in fall 2007, and married in fall 2008).  The savings bond isn’t mature and cannot be cashed.  I supposed we’ll cash it in in 2036 (when it is fully mature) as a 28th anniversary gift?

Sigh.  I know this isn’t strictly an RSVP response, but … people are so weird.

These are hilarious. WE did online rsvp’s so we didn’t have this issue…i did have some mighty strange phone calls regarding rsvp’s though, regarding if people could or could not. but more often than not, we got these VERY LONG WINDED responses about how excited they were (ppl we didn’ tknow btw…like his mom’s cousins or something) or how sorry they were they couldn’t and very detailed reasoning WHY! Ha =].

This is on the other side of RSVP

I just got a wedding invitation last Thursday for a 9/26/09 wedding!  Past the RSVP date.  It also didn’t have a stamp. So I’m like well do I even bother? 

I dont think I was on the B list either.  I just think they are very laid back as they were hand delivered.

nothing super weird , but my Aunt did put a pre-stamped postcard RSVP inside an envelope and mailed it back that way… what makes it ironic is she collects postcards.
